On the last hike we took this summer, I got a photo of juniper berries that I really liked, and I knew it would end up as a watercolor painting. :-)

Here you can see some of the berries and needles being developed. This past week was SOOOO busy, but I plan to spend at least 2 full days painting this coming week, so there should be good progress on this piece soon. As well, I am hoping to finish another oil painting, and I am starting a commissioned pencil portrait of a baby as a Christmas gift for the baby's grandmother. I have to finish it in a couple of weeks as it has to be sent away before the Christmas rush begins. 

I am so happy to be an artist! It really fills my sails when I get to be in my studio!
